Another great review for Where There's Smoke! Where There’s Smoke Review

We got the TAKS results back yesterday and my kids did NOT do well in math. Over half of them failed. I'm so discouraged. We were working on Math like three hours a day. Only one failed the writing, though, and he's SPED and ESL.

It's been awhile since I blogged about TV, mostly because I spent last week watching the first season of Veronica Mars. WOW, what an addictive show. Seasons 2 and 3 are next on the queue. I loved the overarching mystery of Lily Kane, I loved VM's attitude and friendship with Wallace, I loved her belief her mom would come back, I loved her relationship with her dad, but I was absolutely intrigued by Logan Echolls. What a terrific character. I kind of see him and Alex Karev from Grey's having similar lives (though Alex wasn't wealthy, I don't think.) Very compelling stuff.

So I've only seen the last two episodes of Supernatural once. I'm not sure what I thought would happen, but every time they talk about a big battle, and then it's one demon against our boys...just different than I envisioned. I can't believe what happened to Dean, and while I was pleased Sam was able to fend off Lilith's attack, I keep thinking about the episode in Season One where he was locked in the closet and forced his way out with his mind to save Dean. And why didn't they ever pursue the story about Mary knowing the demon and her friends dying (which is actually being addressed in the Rising Son comics.)

I guess Men in Trees is done. Really, once Marin and Jack got together and the agent and Plow Guy moved to New York, what else was there to tell (though I loved Patrick working for the agent and making the office do things the friendly way). Still, will miss that gang.

NCIS has been saying for weeks one of their main characters would die and that happened last night during the two hour finale. That didn't shock or bother me as much as the very very end, which was similar to The Unit season finale last year. I wonder what will happen next year.

Grey's Anatomy is getting good again. Their season finale is tomorrow night.

Lost is good, but not as compelling as it used to be for me. Maybe when I don't have as much competition for my attention I can enjoy the season finale.

What TV shows have you been watching? Which season finales surprised you most?

Kripke said the network wanted them to take the war big, epic...and then they cut their budget. So it was impossible to manifest it the way it was originally supposed to be. I liked it better the way it ended up, personally.

He also said the Mary stuff will be addressed in the future. I thought he said next season, but maybe it's only in the comics? Not sure.

I've hardly been watching any tv except for Greys. I've been trying to watch Lost but my VCR keeps cutting off before it starts so now I have to play catch up on line I think. I missed the House season ender too. I think Heroes starts up again next week...I better check into that...

Congrats on the review!

I love that you're loving Veronica and the gang. I was a total fan of Veronica and Logan. Hated that the show got canceled. But then I have a track record of liking shows that get canceled, though I'm currently most upset about Moonlight. I just saw an article online about the shows that have gotten the ax, and I watched 9 of them!

I'm so curious how they're going to get Dean out of hell next season on Supernatural.

Stupid budget cutters. And it was not the way I pictured Hell, either, based on their own mythology.

Kelly, Heroes won't be back till fall. You DEFINITELY need to catch up with Lost and House, though.

Trish, I'm anxiously awaiting to see who was at the door at the end of Season One! I know who I want it to be, but I think it will be the other one.
